    Alleva and the Ialialn Food Center, both in little italy, make great sandwiches...but not as great as Faicco. I would kill for a sandwiches from any of thoses stores. Here in LA nothing even comes close! Blech!

      Second on Domanicks, from which I had a Surpemo yesterday.

      If I went to Tony Lukes, I'd have to order a Roast Pork Italian.

      Have heard good things about Faicco, but have not made it to have one.

      Other suggestions: Aliodoro, on Sullivan north of Spring, whcih is a shadow of what it was as Melampo (Allessandro was a sandwich making genius); and Manganaro's Groceria on 9th Ave. btw. 37th and 38th (http://www.manganaros.com/), which is nearby Manganaro's HeroBoy (http://www.manganarosheroboy.net/). The Groceria claims to have no relationship with HeroBoy, and to me it sounds like a family feud. HeroBoy is more of a fastfood operation, but for one it is good. Aliodoro and the Groceria both use good stuff in their sandwiches, however, I usually find that I am wishing they had more meat in them.

                sub? you mean hero?

                A great italian hero awaits you at Dominicks on 1st ave and 60th.
